Box Bag Bug

I should be working on Step 5 of my Orange Crush quilt because afterall, Step 6-Mystery Revealed was posted earlier in the week! Instead, I got a bug! A box bag bug that is! Boy, that's a mouthfull! Try to said that three times real fast! :D





Yep, these are what I've been working on in my spare times. Recognize that red butterflies one?

I saw this Box Bag first over at Lisa Boyer's blog. She is the author of That Dorky Homemade Look. Click here to check out her site. She is taking a break from blogging at the moment due to a busy schedule, but her blog is worth taking a lookee... fun, fun, fun.

Lisa made these bags and has a link to the tutorial, so that is where I got the pattern to make those bags. Click here for the tut.

All of those Box Bags in the photo have been claimed except for one...


I mentioned before in my previous post that I will have another giveaway real soon. Well, here it is! I'm giving this Box Bag and a few goodies to go inside it. This is my way of saying thank you to all of you who stopped by and leaving a comment. All you have to do to be in the drawing is to comment on this post and tell me what color or colors of fabrics you want to see in this Box Bag. The winner will get their preferences of some FQs in this bag. I do have 1930's fabrics and Civil War fabrics, so if you prefer those, let me know. And if you like scrappy like me, then I will fill it with whatever in my stash!

This will be a quick one! This giveaway is open until Sunday night my time. I will do the drawing on Monday afternoon. Good luck!



I found this blooming in the corner of my yard while taking pics of the Box Bags. I forgot I have these lilies. What a pleasant unexpected!

And since I have the camera... have to take some pics of my furry babies.... :D

Wow, another great giveaway. Step 5 will still be there when you are ready. I think 30's would be great. I have seen some quilts I really liked lately with the 30's.
The bags are great, and the lilies are beautiful.

Oooh! Those lilies are pretty! I just took some pictures of the fuschias on my deck but they are still on the camera.
I'm going to check out that tutorial for the box bags too. I love purples!

You are too funny. But man I know what it is like to get into something then not be able to stop making them! They are darling though! Your orange crush is coming along great as well. It is so neat that you are able to participate in these things. The projects have that much more meaning!

I am doing my DJ in 30's, and though my collection is getting bigger, I still have a long way to go, so that is what I would choose. Have a great weekend hun.
Love Stacy

p.s. that is one special little girl you have to give away her hair like that. She will always remember that!

Love those lilies. 30's fabrics would look perfect in that bag and would go well with my Baby Jane.

Great bags! I am a scrap lover. I've been lurking in your blog for a while. I used to live in MoVal/Riverside and I get homesick from all the scenery in your sunny outdoor shots. Thanks for the giveaway! lhydeman@comcast.net

Those bug boxes are adorable. If I'm not the lucky winner, I'll have to try to make one of my own.

You didn't know what you were getting into when you said that you would help me.
